Why the mower was naughty, or tale of a cracked deck.

Another belt arrived this morning, I did a quick fit but it quickly jumped off the pulley, they aren't supposed to be at that angle.
 A quick prod underneath revealed why. The deck had cracked where the pulley mount attached.

 So off came the deck, luckily having a hoist makes the job fairly simple. Then bash the deck back into place.
Then a play with the welder, naturally with my usual mr blobby result. The deck is fairly corroded so I wasn't going to get too fancy.

 Turn it over and do a bit more blobbing on the other side.
 Chuck a bit of paint on, This is Killrust paint so it may help.
A spot of grease on the pivot surfaces of the pulley set and it was time to refit and mow.
Of course this was far more work than my body can handle, so I only did a rough mow, I shall do another run later and make things a bit neater.
